Busy Weekend


These are pictures from last week when we were busy pricing all the items for the garage sale this weekend. So I guess I should have titled this post a busy week! The sale was pretty successful. None of us made a ton of money, but we did get rid of some of the largest items that we really wanted to be rid of.

An interesting thing to note is that Denis and I were not actually around for much of the garage sale taking place at our house. We both worked on the first day of the sale, Friday. Saturday afternoon, we left for a wedding at 12:30 and didn't return until the sale was over. And Sunday we went to church and then out to a local vineyard to pick up our wine club selections. We returned in time to make quick work of the pack up. A local charity will be picking up all the left-overs on Wednesday or next weekend.

So who was manning our sale while we were gone? Our staff - my mom and her good friends who came down from Yakima, WA for the occasion. They have a whole system for doing garage sales and did SOOO much work. I'm afraid I didn't take any pictures of the "staff" at work, though. We had them over for dinner (with our locally produced wine) last night as a thank you.

Good way to get rid of a lot of "stuff"...I have a bunch in my basement that need to be hauled out.

How nice for them to do that for you! I think it's so refreshing to clean out.

That sounds like a busy weekend. Was the wedding fun? Did you like the wine?

The wedding was nice. It was outdoors and a bit quirky. We knew plenty of people there, so that's always nice. I dubbed myself the official department photographer and took pics of all of us that work together. I have to edit them a bit and get them printed to show to everyone.
